Gabriella Laude

Marketing and Communications Co-Lead

Gabriella joins the YPN as a Marketing & Comms Co-Lead, having volunteered with the subcommittee prior and has been involved with the YPN as a member since its inception. Alongside Katie, she helps to plan, facilitate, and execute the YPNs strategy through our marketing and communications channels.

As a Product Manager at Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, Gabriella collaborates extensively with other stakeholders to conduct product launches and support the global sales offices, including those in Latin America. Additionally, she is also involved in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in NZ as an investment committee member at Momentum and was heavily involved in the health-tech sector as the President of Health Technology Association. Through these experiences, Gabriella foresees the massive opportunities for Kiwi startups to engage in the LATAM market and strengthen the cultural and business ties between LATAM and NZ.

She graduated from the University of Auckland in Marketing, Innovation & Entrepreneurship, and Pharmacology. Gabriella is excited to bring a significant impact to the YPN community through her knowledge, experience, and passion for Latin America.
